“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

cool runnings

today, on the Official First Day of Spring - to celebrate D18 turning eighteen - we ventured to vegas (aka The Armpit of New Zealand) in The Sardine Tin (aka our little van) for a fabulous sunny day riding The Luge...

we had loads of laughs going up the gondolas and up, bounce, up the chair lifts...

and a ton of fun going down.

we tried out every trail: scenic, intermediate and advanced, and even though one or two of us canned off, it was totally
cool runnings mon: peace be the journey, and everyone kept their *lucky egg* intact!!!

i am feeling very Olympic today, how about you??
eins, zwei, drei.....

Excellent fun! Can we come??

I'm still slightly in shock that D17 is now D18. Wowza.

Oh, love that movie, Cool Runnings. Excellent title. :)

The speed of each ride seemed a little tame - are the Crazy & Wild G-hoons getting a little soft in their old age??!! Maybe becoming the G-homes (with a cup of tea and a blanket??!!!)
Do you remember when pre-children Grant and I spent a weekend in RotoVegas - we spent the whole of one afternoon racing each other on the Luge - I kept losing but was close enough to try again...very sad!
